I am a BIG Deion Sanders fan. Have always loved and admired his talent, his style, and his larger than life personality. Like Bo Jackson, Deion played for the NFL and major league baseball. Of the 5 NFL teams he played for, he won his Superbowl rings with the Cowboys and the 49ers. Becoming an NFL commentator as his career was tapering off was a natural for Deion with his megawatt charisma and charm. Appearing on the Sunday night highlights show NFL GameDay and NFL Total Access, he's easily the most enjoyable sports personality on these shows. Does anybody remember his "Sanders Clause" bit he'd do at the end of the year? Damn funny!
So now Deion and his wife Pilar have thrown their hats into the reality show pool, which these days seems to be endless. I just have to say, his wife is HELLA GORGEOUS, and you can tell for sure SHE WORKS OUT! After having had 3 of Deion's 5 kids, that woman still looks amazing! She also seems to have a bit of personality herself. Hey, would Deion "Prime Time" Sanders really have it any other way? After watching the show tonight, I think his wife is pretty darn cool. Go, Pilar!
By the way, you won't meet a nicer celeb than Deion. I met him a few years ago in Times Square. He came into a fast food restaurant that I was in (I won't say which one, and ya can't make me! :) ), and he was just SO down to earth it was ridiculous!
Not only did he come inside, but he ate his meal right there in the plastic seats like the rest of us. People went NUTS!!! And when they started coming up to him asking for autographs, he obliged, with NOT ONE BIT of attitude. A girl asked for a picture with him, and without blinking an eye, he stood up and allowed it. Before it became a photo op for the entire restaurant, his bodyguard/driver shut it down by saying "Okay, people, let the man eat his food. He's been very nice." And he had been. Amazingly so.
I became an even bigger Deion Sanders fan that day. He will always have my vote!
Check out Prime Time Love with Deion, Pilar and the Sanders family. They were actually pretty funny. I now have a new guilty little pleasure to look forward to on Tuesday nights! Yay! ;)
